Rahman Baba got injured at the Africa nations cup in the match between Ghana versus Uganda last week in Gabon. According to a statement issued by Schalke today, “Abdul Rahman Baba’s injury to his left knee was found to be worse than was initially forecasted after his operation in Augsburg yesterday. It presented a picture of a complex rupture to his cruciate ligament along with tears to his internal and external cartilage.
Baba is expected to be on the sidelines for some months to recover from the successful operation.
Therefore, his loan deal with Schalke may have come to an end for this season.

Daniel Opare came to Augsburg with high hopes in 2015. He came from Portugal’s first division FC Porto as a free agent. Unfortunately, he was unable to establish a noticeable influence on the team in all his years in Augsburg.
Opare approached the management of FC Augsburg over his wish to be close to his family in France and in the process have some playing time. His wish has been granted. He moves to Lens on loan until the end of the season. The details of the deal was not disclosed.
It remains doubtful, if, Opare will ever make a break through in Augsburg. The defender had problems in Augsburg because his favorite position is taken by the captain of the team, Paul Verhaegh. He was frustrated most times and watched the beautiful game from the sidelines.
Although, there is a new coach in Augsburg, Manuel Baum finds him surplus to requirements like his predecessors.
